LP gas warning label

On my boat, there's a warning label on the bottom of the lid of the LP gas locker. This label has just about completely worn off. My insurance company wants me to replace it, but I can't find such an item on Defender or West Marine. Do any of you know of a source? The insurance company says it should say (and it's unclear if this is an example or exactly required):

Liquefied propane gas (LPG) is flammable and
explosive. Follow these instructions to avoid
injury or death from fire or explosion.
• This system is designed for use with
liquefied petroleum gas
(LPG/propane/butane) only. Do not
connect compressed natural gas (CNG) to
this system.
• Keep LPG cylinder and/or solenoid valve(s)
closed when the boat is unattended, and
when appliances are not in use.
• Close cylinder valves immediately in any
• Keep empty cylinders tightly closed.
• Close all appliance valves before opening
cylinder valve.
• Apply ignition source to burner before
opening appliance valve.
• Test the system for leakage in accordance
with the instructions required to be posted in
the vicinity of the cylinder each time the
supply valve is opened for appliance use.
Never use flame to check for leaks!

Try a "propane locker" manufacture website.

A welding gas supply would also have a generic label that might work.
